Austin Swartz Scouting Report

Austin Swartz is a shot-making guard. At 6-5, he has solid length and great positional size. Swartz is more athletic than he may give off, getting high above the rim in transition. Swartz is a good stand-still shooter with good balance. Where he really excels is creating space off the bounce. His ability to get a clean look when guarded in the half-court is a real weapon. Swartz will need to continue adding weight. While he is a score-first guard, he is a capable passer and sees the floor well. He has the upside as a defender, but there has traditionally been an inconsistent effort on that end. He has a good handle and could play some combo guard at the next level. Playing up on the UAA Next 17u Circuit this summer, Swartz averaged 2.8 threes made per game and 14.1 points. His dad, Paul Swartz, played D2 basketball. – On3’s Jamie Shaw
